NaPoWriMo #14: “Fragment” by Maggie McGinity

By Maggie McGinity

Forever, or a
Reasonably long
Amount of time
Cannot stretch between
Tomorrow and tonight.
In so many short hours
On a coal-colored evening
Nothing can stay
All waits for the sun
Languishes for the day

Under certain circumstances
My preference would be
A longer night
Now withheld from me

Bright stars in a black sky
Eyes searching for light
If only there was time enough to gaze.
Now, not even time to graze
Going, going, gone the glory days.”


“Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.”
-Emily Dickinson
